distributed audiobook development


AKMA's got a great idea. Take advantage of the Creative Commons license that Larry Lessig put on his new book Free Culture by having a bunch of people each record a chapter of it in audiobook format.

Amazing...I was thinking exactly the same thing today, about both Lessig's book and Cory Doctorow's eastern standard tribe.

Not only does this make the book more broadly accessible, but it has the added bonus of being a chance to hear real voices from the bloggers I know and love.

I have no strong preference on chapters, though I suppose the librarian in me likes the idea of Chapter 9 ("Collectors"), and the title of Chapter 11 ("Chimera") is fabulous!

I nominate my friend Weez, who has a marvelous voice (which she uses as co-host of a local PBS radio show), for the Preface or Intro. Weez, you in?


Bloglines showed up to "I suppose the librarian in me..." and the librarian in me really wanted to see something about you wanting to read the index :)

Ha! I should have thought of that. :)

(BTW, I do have a full-text feed; check the bottom of the sidebar.)

Sure...count me in. (I'll work for good food - I'm easy that way).
